The Elbo chair was created through Autodesk's generative design software. Generative design mimics nature’s evolutionary approach to design, where a designers input design goals into the software, along with parameters such as materials, manufacturing methods, and weight constraints. Using cloud computing, the software explores hundreds of possible permutations of a solution, allowing a designer to find the best solution that fits their design criteria. The result is a chair with 18% less volume than the original design, a 90% decrease in maximum displacement, and an 80% decrease in maximum stresses. The chair was then fabricated with a CNC in solid Walnut.
The Elbo Chair has been exhibited in (SF MoMa) San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's 2018 Exhibition, 'Designed in California'.
The Elbo Chair was listed in the top 10 most innovated objects of 2016 by Wired Magazine.
Time-Machine is an unorthodox three dimensional time-telling instrument. Its cylindrical void replaces the conventional clock’s central axis and associated hands, creating a sense of depth and mystery. Each hour is represented by a single segment in a twelve-segment ring-of-lights that progress from one to twelve lighted segments every twelve hours. Twelve wings successively rotate 180 degrees to denote five-minute periods while alternating the instrument’s face between dark and light each hour. These five-minute, one-hour and half-day transformations create visual and visceral reminders of the passage of time, analogous to each day’s cycling between light and dark. Twenty-five units were made with the outer form being CNCed in anodized aluminum and the internal gears being 3Dprinted in resin. Each unit sits on a limestone base.
The Arbor Lamp is fabricated using a Supervised High-Rate Metal Printing(SHRMP) technique developed by Autodesk's Applied Research Lab. The printing technique utilizes a 6-axis industrial robot arm and welding machines to print structures with stainless steel metal. The system is controlled by a closed loop feedback system using cameras and computer vision algorithms to allow for real-time correction of unexpected disturbances in the process.
The Taper table base was developed to explore the new possibilities and workflows to furniture design that CNC fabrication enables. The result is a table base that uses tapered dovetails as a clamping mechanism to join the three organic walnut legs of the table base.
Music video props for Icelandic music artist Bjork. The song 'Black Lake' was a single from her 2015 album, Vulnicura. 3D Modeled in Fusion 360, 3D Printed in flexible resin, painted and assembled by Bjork's creative team.
Ember Jewelry was an exercise to test the Autodesk Ember printer with the different printable resins on the market for metal casting. These pieces were 3D modeled in Fusion360, printed on Autodesk's Ember printer and metal casted in Sterling Silver. 30 sets of earrings and necklaces were made each with a custom machined box.
Assisted in the design and fabrication of the Burning Man Temple with Temple architect David Best and his team.
Worked with Team New Zealand and their catamaran to fabricated an airfoil for the 2013 America's Cup Sailing Race.
